XBOX/PS3 Pool Games? - 01-05-2010, 11:46 PM

Anyone have good videogame titles for pool?

I know it may sound nerdy but....sometimes...you just can't get to a pool hall and play video games instead..so might as well play pool in video games! haha!

what games are good out there? I have an xbox but let's include PS3 and Wii in the discussion as well.

I've googled them and I came across with Bankshot Billiards and World Championship Pool. Are they any good?

These games probably will not help stroke and all that stuff but it can help with run out patterns.

They had a few good ones on the ps2. The hustle, and world pool championship 2003 were fun to play

I own virtual pool for the xbox and for the PC. It is probably the best pool game I have played though there isn't really a huge selection. Tons of different games in it and the shot mechanics seem to be pretty close to where they should be.

I got Pool Hall Pro for the Wii for my Christmas present from my kids this year. I haven't gotten a chance to play any of the "tour" or campaign stuff, just exhibition matches to try it out. It seems pretty cool. Of course, with the Wii you have real motion to account for, which is what interested me in this one, instead of ones for XBox of PS2/3 systems, which we also have. My issue with the Wii game is that I haven't gotten the cue-style controller holders yet. None of the stores that sell games here locally have stocked them in recent memory, so I will have to order them online, which isn't a big deal, I just haven't gotten around to it so soon after Christmas yet. It is a little difficult aiming on the cue ball for english or draw holding the controller one-handed. Too much coffee, perhaps?

The game seem decent. Speed, english, draw, all responsive with the Wii controller. I should know more in the next few weeks. It lets you play 8-Ball, 9-ball, billiards, snooker, lots of stuff. The reviews I read online complained of lack of options and music, stuff I wasn't worried about. (Customizing my character or his pool room? OK, I just wanna play....) Seems as tho they were more interested in the "game" aspect rather than playing pool to me. I like it just fine, for $20.

hustle kings which is a download from the playstation network store for $12 is an excellent game, the graphics are stunning and it lets you play 8 ball, 9 ball, straight pool, killer, cut throat and black ball to name a few with more that you can unlock as you play the game

Hustle kings as mentioned above is the newest and best true to life pool game out there, but its exclusive only to ps3..

Xbox 360 has no pool games, and the wii pool game ive tried is mediocre imo..

The very best one out there is called "Get Up Off Your Couch". It's a lot harder than any other videogame out there but the good thing is, it comes with a wireless pool cue. In fact, you don't even need to charge it before use. It's ready to go any time you want.

Xbox 360 has a new downloadable game called Inferno Pool. Seems pretty good as far as the physics go. My problem is that the tables you use are all worn down and ugly and the main game involves two players hitting balls in as fast as they can to send over to the other players table.

You can also play 8ball or 9ball as well so its not a huge deal. Try the demo out if you are Xbox Live.

I agree and a pendulum stoke does not register you have to move the wiimote in a straight line... it's OK .. but could be so much more

Inferno pool is also available on the PS3. My son and I paly it fairly often, and at $10 you cant go wrong.

I have to completely agree with this one. There's no doubt this is the best one. Get out of your house and go to the real thing, interact with real people, and leave the couch alone.

Yeah, thats a great idea and all, but where Im at, the pool hall closes at midnight, whether there are paying customers or not, so I too am stuck playing a video game instead of really enjoying my great playing cues and the fellowship found at a pool room.
